Computational Electromagnetics
Fall 2003


Prof. Dr. Ronald H.W. Hoppe
Dipl. Phys. Werner E. Schabert

Contents:

We give an introduction to the basic problems in electromagnetic field theory associated with Maxwell's equations in the low frequency case (eddy current equations) and in the high frequency regime (time-harmonic approach; waveguides, scattering). Then, we focus on numerical solution techniques with emphasis on the Finite Element Method (FEM) including edge elements, the Boundary Element Method (BEM), and the hybrid FEM/BEM Method for coupled interior-exterior domain problems. We will also address the Finite Integration Technique (FIT) and multipole methods.


Prerequisites:

Calculus, Linear Algebra, Numerical Analysis
